We ate here while passing through Port Alfred and it has to be the coolest place in town. It’s beautifully set in one of the oldest buildings with amazing photos all over the walls. The food is incredible and the beer is delicious too!

A group of 30 of us went out on Friday evening. We had a lovely time, food was great and portions large. For a large group, the staff handled the orders very well and there were minimal delays. Will be back.

The "Wharf Street Brew Pub" is situated on the historic Wharf Street in Port Alfred. It is housed in the oldest commercial building in Port Alfred completed in 1853. The decor is simple with pictures of old Port Alfred being the focal pointWe have micro Brewery attached to us and sell three of our own beers. Our food is a selection of Pub Style food like fish and chips, schnitzels and burgers ranging to freshly caught line fish, in house matured steaks and a host of other things in between. We pride our selves on good food and service so please pop in if only to sample our local brew, you might well end up staying for a bite to eat as many do after seeing our menu.
